I hav'nt tried this particular recipe but it sounds disgusting. We were doing WWII for a play and I had to make food. I found a different one and it doesn't use eggs (which were rationed and you could only get 1 fresh one a week) and doesnt take long to cook. I cooked them for 10 mins and about 5 when I gave them out. They actually taste ok.

Just Wondering, As I Would Like To Make This Recipe, Does It Have To Be Spelt Flour, Or Can It Be Any Flour? Thanks! LL :) xx

Very tasty recipe wondering as well whether it can be normal flour. Yes you can use normal plain flour, we used spelt for authenticity! The Cookit Team.

My brother and I made this recipe because we are reading about the Romans. It was delicious! We are making it again because our Daddy liked it which is unusual because our Daddy doesn't have a very sweet tooth! Our first go, and it turned out ok, but we think you should use baking paper.

While cooking mine seemed to create a hole in the middle. All rose quite high then when out of the oven flopped flat like a pancake. Is this normal?

Not like any honey cake I have ever seen. The ratio of flour 50g to the eggs and honey to my mind is not enough. Was this a misprint? No raising agent so came out more like a brownie have wasted almost a whole jar of honey will not be using this recipe again 😭
Name: Penny Johnson 31st October 2017
This is an ancient Roman recipe for honey cake, researched by an expert on ancient Roman cookery, for the History Cookbook. The Romans did like very sweet things! Today we would certainly normally add more flour, etc Mrs. Dale as you said, but this is how they made it 2000 years ago.

I helped my son make this recipe for a school homework project.
I would recommend using an electric whisk to beat the eggs.
We used two circular cake tins and made two quite flat cakes. They had a light texture and the children loved them!
